    .........No one said that the 100 of vouchers had to be from one win, so that is very good thinking

    So 2 50 vouchers would win that challenge
    (thinking outside the box wins again)

    I've been rumbled, I didn't think anyone was watching. I'm thinking outside the box for the years supply as well i.e. 2 x 6 months. I'll be thinking outside the box even more for quite a few of the hard challenges. I've got lots of ideas I've just got to win the items first.

    Congratulations on your wins. I reckon you should go for a year's supply of DVDs. You have already won more than I ever watch in a year.

    Last night I won a 2-4 years, sleep suit (sleeping bag that converts into a suit with legs) for the nephew, I've requested a blue one.

    Does a sleeping bag count as a bed or am I going to claim something blue?

    Grand Design Tickets = Tickets

    Congratulations on your wins.

    I was 1 of the 1000 that was sent a LFC Wash bag, Flag and Card holder, I think I'm going to go for floppy, being the flag. Was a nice surprise as it turned up unannounced.

    I've valued them as the following.
    Wash bag - 10
    Flag - 6
    Card holder - 8

    Wins!
    I entered the Liverpool competitions with Mansey's post pals challenge in mind.
    Last week I got a 'Little Liver' pack, including a couple of baby books and a plastic frame - my other half pinched this to give to his colleague on paternity leave who's a massive lfc fan, so I'm counting this as my something plastic challenge.

    Good news is that the postie brought me another LFC win this morning- a boot bag, hat and a room sign. Perfect for a Post Pal!

    I might need a hand getting creative with my other win though: a cook book. I've already crossed off book, so I was thinking that as it's a healthy recipe book about vegetables...and they're low in fat... I could count that as rhyming with tat...? Clutching at straws here!

    Well done on all your wins

    Do you have a link to Post Pals?
    I think you just go through the kids, find who would like the item you have and post it to the address on the page.
    I know they are not sent direct to the kids but passed on to them.

    Lucinad will happen along soon and help with your cook book

    (I like the way you tried though )
